Happy Monday! How are your Christmas preparations coming along? I have a couple of holiday treats to share with you today created for the Maya Road/Tombow product swap. I and began with the Maya Road Chipboard Snowflake Coasters. I love their size and knew they'd provide a great base to pile on some fun, bulky embellishments. This first ornament was coated in Bubblegum Metallic Mist and then covered in mica flakes.
I painted the second layer of the ornament with off-white acrylic paint, ruffed up the edges a bit to add distressing and then ran it through my sewing machine. I then finished it off with Iridescent Maya Glitter and adhered it to the base using Tombow Power Adhesive Tabs. A Mega Bottle Cap came next and I filled it with Mini White Organza Roses Trim and attached two Vintage Wood Snowflakes that I had painted and distressed with ink.
I adhered Maya Road Pearl Cream Vintage Leaf Trinket Pins in between the chipboard layers and finished with vintage buttons and a layer of Cream Soft Vintage Scallop Lace Trim adhered to the backside of the ornament using the Tombow Permanent Adhesive Stamp Runner.
My second ornament began with another Chipboard Snowflake Coaster painted with off-white acrylic paint. I then used my Tombow Jelly Bean Dual Brush Pen to draw pink polka-dots randomly on the coaster. I then ran it through my sewing machine, sanded the edges and coated it with mica flakes.
I used another Tombow pen from the Jelly Bean collection and tried a new to me technique, that of drawing directly onto the a bare Mini Scallop Chipboard frame and covering it in this color. I then coated it with a layer of Iridescent Maya Glitter and just love how it turned out. I'll be trying this again for sure.
I used the Tombow Permanent Adhesive Stamp Runner and adhered a strip of Seafoam Blue Tu-Tu Tulle to the backside of the scallop frame. I adhered this layer to the base and started piling on my favorite things such as a Cream Velvet Pleat Blossom, a Chipboard Snowflake, a Skinny Wood Spool, a Vintage Button Stick Pin, gingham ribbon, and buttons.
